Pic-Apart Celebrates April With Robert Frost

Welcome to the April 2012 edition of Pic-Apart Poetry.

Such a lot of fun we have sharing and creating with 25 words each month.

It’s difficult to believe that spring has been in full swing

for already a month and that May is just around the corner.

And April has given us much to celebrate.

This month in honor of National Poetry Month


and Earth Day


we feature an American poet who celebrates both the earth and poetry

in such an eloquent way.

Robert Frost is certainly a poetic treasure.




Of Poets and Poetry, he has said:


“A poem begins as a lump in the throat,
a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.”


“A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.”


“A poet never takes notes.
You never take notes in a love affair.”


“Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat.”


“Poetry is about the grief. Politics is about the grievance.”


“Poetry is what gets lost in translation.”


“Poetry is when an emotion has found
its thought and the thought has found words.”


“Poets are like baseball pitchers. Both have their moments. The intervals are the tough things.”


And his poetry exemplifies what poetry is and what poets do:

SPRING POOLS

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect
The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,
But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.
The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods –
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.

Robert Frost (1923)

**********


A CONSIDERABLE SPECK

(Microscopic)

A speck that would have been beneath my sight
On any but a paper sheet so white
Set off across what I had written there.
And I had idly poised my pen in air
To stop it with a period of ink
When something strange about it made me think,
This was no dust speck by my breathing blown,
But unmistakably a living mite
With inclinations it could call its own.
It paused as with suspicion of my pen,
And then came racing wildly on again
To where my manuscript was not yet dry;
Then paused again and either drank or smelt–
With loathing, for again it turned to fly.
Plainly with an intelligence I dealt.
It seemed too tiny to have room for feet,
Yet must have had a set of them complete
To express how much it didn’t want to die.
It ran with terror and with cunning crept.
It faltered: I could see it hesitate;
Then in the middle of the open sheet
Cower down in desperation to accept
Whatever I accorded it of fate.
I have none of the tenderer-than-thou
Collectivistic regimenting love
With which the modern world is being swept.
But this poor microscopic item now!
Since it was nothing I knew evil of
I let it lie there till I hope it slept.

I have a mind myself and recognize
Mind when I meet with it in any guise
No one can know how glad I am to find
On any sheet the least display of mind.

Robert Frost
(first published in “The Atlantic Monthly” July, 1939)

Please select your 25 words
from these pieces and create a new piece

(or two or three) of your own using only those 25 words.

Remember though that those 25 words may be
repeated and tenses changed

so you are not limited to a 25-word piece.

And, most importantly, HAVE FUN . . . . we love whatever you bring to share.

Again we would love to feature each one of our CPC Pals here on Pic-Apart.

Please just send a piece or two and a bit about yourself

that you would be willing to share with us

and we’ll take care of the rest.


We look forward to what you bring to share with us tonight

and throughout tomorrow as Pic-Apart Poetry celebrates April with Robert Frost.

~Barb and Cherie~

    FLOWER POWER

    Without defect chill and shiver
    Brook or river total sky
    Flowers beside them soon be gone
    Think twice their powers
    Still reflect
    By roots to bring dark foliage

    WITH THE SPRING

    Lost in emotion,
    these words falter
    and hesitate,
    beginning and
    and ending,
    finding a voice
    and written
    across life’s pages
    like flowers opening up
    as the snow melts away.

    Just took Frost’s lines and put them in Jefferson’s mouth Barbara. I’m sure were he to read them he would not mind.

    Not resolved and it is troubling. Seems to be a browser/cable issue in which for the second day loading speed is slower than dialup once was or non-existent. Staring at a lot of blank pages. Thanks for the good wishes though :-)

    Those lines were Robert Frost remarking on contemporary events in his time, the rise of Progressivism, which Rep. Allen West just commented on yesterday and is being heavily condemned for telling the bald truth that traditional and extremely successful Americas individualism has increasingly become overrun with collectivist entitlementism. Refreshing to see a creative type not enamored of the latter.

  11. Well Photobucket has a new editing package, and I haven’t figured it out.

    WinterPool2

    It’s hard to read, so here’s the plain text:

    Winter’s Pool

    Clear skies from chilly waters drink,
    melted snow from every river’s brink:
    a fresh repast from colder, darker days
    ablaze with barren winter’s rays,
    which scalded with ice and burned with frost
    ‘til every speck of life seemed lost.
    From winter’s pool came pouring showers,
    deep, where a sleeping seedling cowers,
    awaking hope, in hopes to flower,
    reborn to life’s confluent power.
    Mind this well when love seems spent,
    consumed by a world with foul intent:
    in truth there are no evil accords,
    only the goodness which faith affords;
    when life’s at its winter, harsh and cruel,
    you need only drink from winter’s pool.

    A REFLECTIVE MOMENT

    A chill in the air,
    I pause a moment to reflect
    on the yesterdays of my life
    as I see them reflected
    in the rivers and forests,
    where again I go in my mind
    to find the self that is me.
    And sometimes lost from sight,
    Nature sweeps them away
    as blotting them out,
    I leave some
    of those days behind.

    JUST A SPECK OF LOVE

    It seemed too tiny
    A speck that would have been
    But unmistakably a living mite
    Plainly with an intelligence
    To express how much it didnt want to die

  19. ROBERT FROST 2 Pictures, Images and Photos
    Robert Frost was one of my favorites , He had words so beautiful from a yearly age to his final days.This is one of my favorite poems he wrote He love the out doors alot.Born March 26, 1874, San Francisco, Calif., U.S.died Jan. 29, 1963, Boston, Mass.) U.S. poet. Frost’s family moved to New England early in his life. After stints at Dartmouth College and Harvard University and a difficult period as a teacher and farmer, he moved to England and published his first collections, A Boy’s Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914). At the outbreak of war he returned to New England. He closely observed rural life and in his poetry endowed it with universal, even metaphysical, meaning, using colloquial language, familiar rhythms, and common symbols to express both its pastoral ideals and its dark complexities. His collections include New Hampshire (1923, Pulitzer Prize), Collected Poems (1930, Pulitzer Prize), A Further Range (1936, Pulitzer Prize), and A Witness Tree (1942, Pulitzer Prize). He was unique among American poets of the 20th century in simultaneously achieving wide popularity and deep critical admiration. Many of his poems, including Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, Birches, The Death of the Hired Man, Dust of Snow, Fire and Ice, and Home Burial, are widely anthologized.
